One fine sunny day a fox was walking across the fields. Soon he saw a vineyard. As he came nearer, he could see some bunches of ripped grapes. The fox looked carefully around him. He had to make sure that he was safe from the watch dogs. He decided to steal some before anyone came along. He jumped upwards but he could not reach the grapes. He jumped again as high as he could. He still could not reach them. The grapes were just too high from his reach.
He was not ready to give up. He backed off, took some running steps and leapt into the air towards the grapes. Again he failed to reach them.
It was getting dark, and he was getting angry. His legs hurt due to jumping and he stopped trying.
As he walked away, he said to himself,” I don’t really want those grapes. I’m sure they are too sour to eat.”
Moral : Sometimes when we cannot achieve some thing, we pretend that is not worth having.
